Since organising Jumping Frames International Dance Video Festival in 2004, the festival has become the city’s striking dance video festival. From 22 September to 31 October, Jumping Frames International Dance Video Festival 2021 is going to be held in the venues of two co-organising units, Golden Scene Cinema and Eaton HK. This year, with the theme concept “Eyes to Eyes”, the festival brings us to witness our time through kino eyes. In this era when performing arts rush into digital adaptation and showing, the intense process of video production and publication fostered gathers and disagreements between artists of different media. As said by curator Elysa WENDI, “ This year's theme ‘Eyes to Eyes’ implies diverse encounters, exchange of ideas, and formulating constructive conversations to set up context or point of entry.” At the same time, Jumping Frames’ theme this year, “Eyes to Eyes” echoes CCDC’s dance season theme “Why 冬 We Dance ?” In this cold winter of breaking away, death and reborn, as CCDC Artistic Director Yuri NG puts it, “We should listen and discuss face to face and eyes to eyes, to hear diverse voices — to disprove, agree with, question, advise each other. Only can transformations welcome the environment’s changes.” Commencing the Jumping Frames 2021 is the world debut of The Forbidden Tongue -— Prologue, the first part of the trilogy The Forbidden Tongue. Film director Rita Nga-shu HUI makes an attempt to adopt the dialogue framework from choreographer Helen LAI’s work of the same name, The Forbidden Tongue, to follow the creative process of nine female choreographers of different ages from 2018 through 2020, creating an important video record of female choreographers
